Atheist's are a clever bunch, I mean, after all, that's why they're atheists, they constantly think about their surroundings. Here is a section for atheist's Quote of The Day. If ya have one or know of one, please post it!!
“Jesus' last words on the cross, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' hardly seem like the words of a man who planned it that way. It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure there is something wrong here.” ~Donald Morgan
“The Church doesn't do so badly, especially when, unlike other multinationals, she is exempt from corporate taxation.” -Anon
“Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.” ~ Isaac Asimov 1920 – 1992
“When it comes to diving for penalties, Premier League footballers have nothing on the proselytising Christians hurling themselves to the ground and writhing in agony as they clutch their imaginary or self-inflicted injuries. Strident followers of other religions have of course embraced this narcissistic tactic with equal fervour.” ~anon
“The difference between science and religion is the difference between a willingness to dispassionately consider new evidence and new arguments, and a passionate unwillingness to do so.” ~Sam Harris
“Faith is… Never having to say you're wrong.”
"You believe that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a woman made from a rib was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
"And you don't understand why I have doubts?" ~Michael Rivero
"What profit has not that fable of Christ brought us!" ~Pope Leo X (As attributed by John Bale, Bishop of Ossory, in The Pageant of Popes, p. 179, 1574)
“The [Catholic] church and religious orders need to acknowledge that there is a problem – that priests have sex and they are susceptible to all sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS. The most important message is that, just like every other part of the population, priests need sex education and sexual disease prevention.” ~Farley Cleghorn
“Disliking a morally absolute set of beliefs with some really rather disturbing instructions contained within them is not a phobia.”
“As a religion, which seeks to instruct its own adherents, the Catholic Church is entitled to do as it pleases… On the other hand, as a political ideology that seeks to impose its most fanatical and potentially lethal ideas on non-believers, often clandestinely through hospital bylaws, Catholic extremism should be resisted as fiercely at home as we oppose the Taliban abroad.”
~Jacob M. Appel
“I've always been amused at the idea that a religious person can say that an atheist will burn in hell as a result of their beliefs, and that is not considered offensive; but if an atheist says that believing in God makes no sense, that is considered deeply offensive. One person is charging the other with faulty logic; the other is charging them with a base immorality that warrants eternal torture. How is the former even vaguely more insulting than the latter?” ~Cenk Uygur
“When the religious ruled the world, atheists were tortured and slaughtered. When atheists become the majority, the religious are mocked. Hold on while I cry a river for the poor mistreated religious folk.” ~ Steven Soldin
“What is sacred to one person is silly – or even deadly – to another.” ~David Horsey
“There is nothing more alarming and degrading to a liberal democracy than the granting, willingly and historically, to most religious entities special exemptions in law, taxes, social policies, education, policing and in matters of war and peace.”
~Elie Mikhael Nasrallah
“Giovanni Boccaccio called the Church's bluff when he wrote the Decameron in the 14th century. Nothing has changed since. Boccaccio's wonderfully ribald satire at the expense of the Roman Catholic Church's gross sexual hypocrisy is as apt today as ever.”
“Most modern liberal theologians have generally rejected the virgin birth. They regard it as a religious myth that was added to Christian belief in the late first century CE and was triggered by a Greek mistranslation of the book of Isaiah from the original Hebrew. Its purpose was to make Christianity more competitive with contemporary Pagan religions in the Mediterranean region, most of whom featured their founder having being born of a virgin. Without the claim of a virgin birth, it is unclear whether Christianity could have survived.”
“If churches do not feel that a full equality of access in public services is something they can endorse, they do not have to take state money.”
“Why all the fuss over Scientology, when resources and time might better be directed at the finances, earthly corruption, and raw power of, say, the Catholic Church, an institution that wields influence incalculably greater than Hubbard's itty-bitty religion?”
